for his forecast. tell us more about the snow and how much we're going to get or not. >> we have a clipper coming. most of us are going to see some snow today but it's kind of warm. temperatures in the upper 30s. road surface temperatures yesterday were in the 60s, even near 70 under the sunshine even though air temps were in the 50s. so we have warm surfaces. that means to me a lot of the snow that falls is going to melt on the road but may accumulate a little bit on the grassy surfaces. let's get things started. we do have winter weather advisory going in effect later this morning north and west of d.c. this will include the entire shenandoah valley and parts of northern virginia. loudoun county, montgomery, frederick, carroll. this goes into effect later this morning through the evening hours for a little bit of snow. we'll talk about that in a moment. the bus stop forecast, mostly cloudy, chilly this morning. temperatures in the 30s. some areas have actually dipped into the upper 20s but about 30 for the low spots. sunrise 7:08. no problems this morning. the day planner, we've got clouds. 38 at 8:00. noon 38. a mix of some rain and snow. most of the precip at noon will still be north and west of d.c. by the middle of the afternoon, here comes the snow. 37. 37 and snow, it's melting on the road surfaces. as we get into the evening hours, we'll still be looking at snow at 8:00 p.m. maybe 36 in town. north and west especially after dark, that's when we could run into a couple of those slick spots. we're looking at snow and rain across parts of west virginia. i-79 as it marches to the east. this gives you a timetable. still going to be several more hours before we have to deal with it out west. temperatures in luray and hagerstown, winchester freezing or below. it's down to 30 if gaithersburg. 34 culpeper. down south we have mid-30s at the pacs naval air station -- pacs naval air station. visibilities are fine. temperatures running at 38 at national. feels like 36 with a light northeast wind at 3 miles an hour. bigger picture, want to show you the storm system. coming through the ohio valley with rain in southern kentucky and tennessee. snow north of take, especially as you head to indiana and ohio. a couple of hours in the darkinger blue, mod -- darker blue, moderate snow. for us we'll put everything in motion. cloudy through 9:00. a little bit of snow into garrett county. toward noon i still think we're okay. we may start to see some flurries. you have to go west of 81 to really see some of that snow. as we head toward 3:00, north and west of town we should be seeing snow. this is why the weather services put the weather advisory in effect north and west of us. we get into the snow for the evening commute but remember, temperatures should be above freezing. so i think the roads are wet. sure, people are going to freak out a little bit with some snow flakes out there. it will slow you down, even with wet roads. tonight 9:00 still some light snow to the north. that will be winding down to flurries by midnight. want to quickly show you my accumulation map before we get to the forecast. just a trace to maybe an inch in the immediate metro. the inch part will be north and west of gaithersburg and maybe toward sterling. one or two possible upper montgomery and loudoun counties. maybe 2 to 4 in the mountains. the forecast today, we've got the afternoon rain-snow mix. north and west a little snow. 40 for the high this morning. tomorrow upper 40s. watch out for a few slick spots tonight. friday 50 degrees. then we turn cold this weekend. maybe a few flurries on saturday. it's 4:48. 4:49. monika, over to you. >>> 4:49 means there's been an ongoing investigation at the scene of a serious overnight accident for four hours now. you're looking at it live from our camera crew on new york avenue at florida avenue in northeast. if you're planning to head on to new york avenue, i think this closure is going to remain in place for some time with the accident investigation and cleanup. serious injuries involved in this one with a tractor-trailer and two vehicles involved in the accident. i'm going to take you over to a map so i can give you some perspective of where it is and what you can do. on the inbound side of new york avenue, the closure i believe is between 4th street and florida avenue northeast. so you can take the brentwood parkway but i suggest you go ahead and take bladensburg road to the south of the accident or montana avenue to rhode island avenue to the north of the accident and avoid it all together. as i said, it's already been there for four hours and it's going to be there for a while longer with serious injuries involved as well. we'll take you over to another map. on the inbound side of braddock road inside the beltway, that is shut down basically between ravensworth and backlick road with a pole down. we're being told by authorities that take closure may remain in place till about 7:00 this morning. so if you're heading inbound on braddock road, you can go ahead and exit to the beltway but i suggest you go ahead and use route 236 to the north of this incident instead and avoid braddock road if you can this morning. we'll take you to a live picture. if you're planning to head inbound on i-66, that is doing okay. a close-up shot of nutley street where all lanes are

Feb 16, 2012 4:00pm EST
that's it from me. i'll see you tomorrow. maria has your second hour of the "closing bell." >> it is 4:00 on wall street. do you know where your money is? hi, everybody, welcome back to the "closing bell." i'm maria bartiromo, coming to you today live from the second market trading floor in new york city. coming up in the program, i'm getting the outlook for the private stock market when i speak to the founder and ceo barry silbert. we've got green arrows across the board as things close on wall street at 4:00. the market rallying sharply today after another batch of economic data that was enkoicoue encouraging. put all three major averages on pace to close higher for the week. an exclusive interview with terry duffy. we'll get his outlook for the exchange consolidation. also find out how getting a profitable and making money in the exchange has changed over the years. take a look how we finished the day on wall street. that was about 1%, 12,904, on volume of really anemic, under 800 million shares traded at the big board. nasdaq, the winner on the year, on the day as well. 1.5% higher, up about 13% in 2012. s&p 500 up 15 points today, better than 1%. settling out at 1358. let's get you to the man on the floor of the nyse, bob pisani. >> what an interesting day. let's put up the dow chart, because we closed essentially at the highs for the day. we're getting close to the dow at 13,000. my point about it, it's a little more rarified of 10,000. only in 2007 and 2008 did we cross it a number of times. here's your headlines. take a look. it was a fairly quiet day until about 11:30 eastern time. that's when we got reports that the ecb would reportedly agree to swap their greek bonds for new bonds. the ecb has stayed out of this whole greek discussion. that's why it took the markets a little bit by surprise. the bottom line is that the ecb actions, if correct, have increased the chances of an overall greek deal next week. that includes the private deal that is still being negotiated, the psi. dow, highest level since may of 2008. take a look at the euro, remember, we talked about the euro. the euro had strengthened recently. bad day yesterday. here you see it moving up throughout the day, ending near the highs today, closing over $1.31. same situation with materials. that was the leadership group up until a few days ago. notably weak in the last few days. you can see today that was a big mover on the upside. that got a lot of people interested. transports the same thing, down nearly 4% in the last five, six trading sessions. big comeback today. again, a lot of people watching that. finally, the biggest one of all, apple. 50 million shares traded yesterday, changing hands yesterday. 35 million today. apple moving up nearly 1%. big day here, maria. back to you. >> really was, bob. thank you so much. nice to see a bit of a breakout in the market. oil prices also rallied today. that tops the business headlines at this hour. light sweet crude oil up by another 51 cents a barrel, settling at $102.31 a barrel on crude oil. encouraging data on the u.s. labor and housing market. putting pressure on gold, meanwhile, for much of the day. gold reversed losses after the u.s. dollar weakened. gold off 30 cents today to settle at just over $1,728 an ounce on gold. the new york fire department says a crane at the world trade center construction site dropped a load of metal beams, which damaged a construction vehicle. luckily no one was in the truck, and no serious injuries were reported. >>> the dow and nasdaq surging to multi-year highs today after jobless claims fell to nearly a four-year low, optimism about the debt crisis in europe. our next guest said the rally can't continue. in fact they're expecting a 2% to 4% increase in the dow jones industrial average in the next one to two months. joining me is a chief market strategist. gentlemen, nice to have you on the program. thang so much for joining us. >> thank you. >> thank you, maria. >> madeem, this is your prediction about the s&p 500 going higher in the next one two to months. how much higher and what's behind this optimism for stocks? >> it's always difficult to predict short term. in the short term, you have a number of positives. for example, recently weakening of the dollar gives you a little bit more confidence of the achievability of earnings. some of the positive economic signs from u.s. and china should be enough to offset some of the worries about europe. and finally, you're still at a level where the dividend yield on the stocks is greater than a ten-year treasury yield. it does draw investors toward equities. in the absence of negative news, the natural path tends to be a bit higher. >> do you not worry that if we were to see greece default, if we were to see any kind of hiccup in europe, that does impact europe? >> again, to the extent greece defaults and it doesn't brief contagion and cause severe liquidity problems for the german banks, i don't believe it will be a big enough event. at this point, i don't think a greek default would be a fundamental serious issue for the market. >> okay. that's a good point. james, let me get your take on things. how are you investing in this environment? >> we think the market moves a little higher. we're particularly enthusiastic about the domestic equities and emerging market equities. maybe a little more cautious regarding international developed equities at the time. we think all the safe stuff is fairly expensive. call it bonds. call it a lot of other safe type of investments. we're enthusiastic about domestic equities at this time and feel like the equity market is between 1400 and 1450 on the s&p this year. so we think stocks remain cheap and attractive. >> and the leadership groups that you want to own, if in fact we were to see this market go higher, as you predict? where do you want to be exposed? >> we like tech. we think tech is still inexpensive. dividend possibilities do exist in many of the names there. the growth prospects are really very good. balance sheets are great. financials look inexpensive to us, with a catalyst probably beyond the may stress test, as well as valuation gaap closes. dividend yield, goebel growth characteristics there. >> vadeem, let me ask your take on the other sort of catalysts for this market. m & a action, do you think we'll see deal flow pickup? is that going to be a catalyst for stock? >> i believe so. economically it would make a lot of sense. with the organic growth being reasonably slow and a lot of companies attractively valued, so the m & a activity becomes accretive, i think it makes sense. it's whether companies have enough confidence to make the bid and the counterparty willing to accept it. the financing availability is improving. the targets are very attractive. and the deals make sense in the context of reasonably slow organic growth. >> gentlemen, great conversation. we appreciate your time tonight. thanks so much. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> james, vadeem, we'll see you soon. >>> barry silbert, find out why facebook upcoming ipo will trade. explaining what was behind the technical glitch that would cause oil trading to crash on monday. then jackie joins us with all the after the bell hours action. >> lots of companies reporting after the bell, including communications and retail. we'll have the latest from realtime central after the break. >>> from the nasdaq market site, i'm seema mody. the norm in 2012, today getting a boost from economic data that came out this morning. take a note of the old school tech names, reaching historic highs. microsoft as mentioned before hit a four-year high this afternoon. dell has the tenth biggest impact on the nasdaq 100. cisco hitting a 52-week high. money definitely flowing into the big tech names. our biggest winner here on the nasdaq 100, that was net app posting strong gains after beating street expectations. >> seema, thank you so much. welcome back to the special edition of the "closing bell" coming to you live from the trading floor of second market. second market provides a trading platform for alternative investments like private companies. and fixed income instruments. the company recorded nearly $9 billion in trades last year. with more than 85,000 participants buying and selling these private companies. the biggest name traded on this platform, of course, has been facebook. it's about to go public. how does the second market keep the momentum going. joining me our host for the day, founder and ceo of second market, barry silbert. we love being here. we were talking in the break, what success you've had in the last year. 55% increase in transactions, compared to 2010. private stock transactions hitting $1 billion. where does this go, and what do you a tribute this surge to in the last year? >> what is really exciting is over the past couple of years, the private company market became a real asset class. it was proven that, one, companies want it, and two, there's investor demand. if you think of the private companies that exist out there, not just the community banks that we launched today, thousands and thousands of private companies can benefit from the marketplace. >> let me ask you about that. the community banks program, the platform that you're launching today, how do you come up with the next tier of companies that you're going to make a market in? >> it really comes down to demand from either the issuer, the company, or investors. so we're responding to the fact that there are a lot of investors that want to get involved in these really exciting community banks that are good businesses, some pay dividends, then the banks themselves, they also want to have a liquid equity. it's the same thing in the venture-backed communities, facebook, twitter, all these companies, all the best companies are now creating an opportunity for investors to buy and sell before they go public. and that's never happened before. >> look at the facebook story, who wouldn't want to trade facebook when the valuation was a lot lower than it is right now, $100 billion. let me ask you this, what kinds of companies are we -- should we expect in the next couple of years that will be private companies traded here at second market? i know you've got community banks. you made a great point a minute ago, there are like 5,000 private community banks out there. >> we're actually letting the crowd decide which of the companies we should create markets in. when they come to second market they can indicate the types of companies and specific companies they want to invest in. we're using that data to make a decision about what are the companies we're going to focus on. it will include lots of great technology fast growing companies, including more established private companies, and subsidiaries of con glom rats. we're trying to enable access to the companies. >> some people might say, look, if the stock is publicly traded, traded at a major exchange, ni know what the rules are. do you have the same kind of transparency? >> we're regulated by the s.e.c. and fnra. the rules are written many, many years ago, a lot of them updated right now to make this a more robust market. ultimately it comes down to trust and transparency. we require every company that trades on second market to disclose financials to the buyers and sellers. we think it's really important for this market to succeed. >> i'll ask you about the legislation crafted in washington in a second. but first let me get to facebook. they're valuing it at $100 billion. pac as the company prepares to go public, how does that impact what's happening here? because you've been trading facebook for how long now? >> three years. >> three years, and you're doing weekly auctions. >> weekly auctions. and other ipos, we've stopped right before the company actually did their public offering. >> are you expecting that to dry up when it goes public? >> we're already working with a whole slew of the next, maybe not the facebooks, but certainly fast growing exciting technology companies. if you think about the fact that there's 3,000 companies that get funded by venture each year, but only 50 go public. we're talking about 2,000, 3,000 companies that could also benefit from liquidity like facebook did. >> so what are the legislation, making their way through congress right now, that will increase capital to businesses? that would have a huge impact on your business. >> it would. there are great effort that the president put forward making it easier for young companies to access capital and go public. bipartisan support on a lot of these bills, we're hoping that things start getting done. because there's a lot of momentum, a lot of support around, again, whether it's crowd funding for small businesses, increase in the cap of shareholders a private company can have before they go public, and an effort around making an ipo on-ramp to make companies get access. >> with dodd/frank, volcker rule, has that impacted liquidity from your standpoint? >> capital flows where the opportunities are. second market is always going to be a place where investors find unique investment opportunities. whether it's securities or bankruptcy claims, they can come to get the best price. >> we appreciate your being here. >> thank you. >> ceo and founder second market. nordstrom, one of the companies making big moves in the after-hours trading session. jackie is looking at all the action after the close. >> let's start with dva. $1.56 versus an expectation of $1.49. the operating income guidance for 2012 still expected to be in the same range as $1.2 billion to $1.3 billion. we're at $88 up, up $2.50 right now. 3% in the after-hours session. nordstrom's, came in at $1.11. beat by 2 cents. the revenues were in line at $3.17 billion. management in the release said nordstrom's fourth quarter performance was consistent with the strong trends the company experienced through 2011. while continuing to make significant investments in the business to evolve with customers, and to enhance the platform for sustainable profitable growth, still this one down in the after-hours session. last, but not least, leap wireless, loss of $1.10 a share. better than expected. the revenue came in, and there was a miss there, $7.67.4 million. also, the company said total 2011 net customers $4 a growth year over year. the company taking the cricket brand nationwide. down about .2%. back over to you. >> jackie, thank you. the dow, nasdaq at multi-year highs tonight. is the top starting to form in this market or is it justified? breaking down the charts on the stocks coming up. we take a break, take a look at the highlights from our guests all day today on cnbc. >>> what's driving the stock market up here in recent months is sort of reversing an overreaction to last year. we got ourselves convinced that the u.s. was headed to a recession and that europe was going to blow up and take the world economy down. i think both were an overreaction. >> nonetheless, it looks like there's no way really for europe to avoid the fact that the problem with the debt crisis, with the greek debt crisis is going to continue to weigh on the economy going forward. >> a lot of dollars are going to be going towards gasoline this summer. a lot of dollars taken out of the economy in general. >> the qe-1 and qe-2 put more reserves in the system, liquefied the banking system. that money is finally trickling down to house holds. >>> you're watching a special edition of the "closing bell," live from the second market trading floor in new york city. and now, maria bartiromo. >>> welcome back. well, here we are coming to you live from the second market trading floor in new york city. it's been a strong start for the year for the major averages certainly. the nasdaq up 13% in 2012. the dow industrials up 5%, just year-to-date. despite the gains, my next guest is turning cautious over the near term. he joins us now with an inside look at what the charts are telling him. jordan, take it away. you suggested to buy energy technology in the banks back in january. nice call. but you've got short-term concerns. >> yeah, two things at work here, maria. bigger picture, we're still bullish for the year. into march and april we want to be cautious. let's start off with a lot of people talking about the january effect. we want to talk about the february effect, which is if you have a good january, how does the rest of the year do from february to december by taking january out of the equation, so it doesn't skew the market. in 57 s&p years, what you see is when you have a january that's up over 2%, you have a very strong skew for the year of approximately 12% to 13% from february to december. so the strong january leads to strength in february to december. that's still a good sign bigger picture. i think from a statistical point of view, we think that's important. >> i guess you really also have to look at the fundamentals to try to figure out if in fact people are going to look at these valuations and think, well, is it keeping up with reality in terms of the fundamental story. but let me look at your second chart here, jordan. you're looking at india and africa. why are you highlighting these two? >> there are lies in statistics. just the presidential cycles, you can't trade or manage risk on there, but you have global breadth, maria. 30% decline last year, we've now broken to the top side. you've got markets like the jfc and south africa at all-time highs. you've got the global breadth behind you. that's what gives traction to the top side. all global markets are starting to rally together. valuations are important, but remember, the markets in september and october lead the dow by three to five months. the data should continue to improve. >> all right. jordan, good stuff. we'll be watching those markets. thank you so much. we're talking about the exchange business next. does the cme go on the hunt for acquisitions? we'll talk withing terry duffy about business today, in his industry. that's an exclusive coming up. then, how a new wave of technology startups in new york city helps silicon valley. stay with us. >>> welcome back. pob pisani do you know on the floor of the new york stock exchange. earnings keep coming in, including retailer nordstrom's, just came in. looks like they beat on the bottom line, but they're giving guidance very much on the conservative side. i have $3.59 for analyst estimates. i think that is the reason you're seeing the strok trade down a little bit in the after-hours. a nice rally today, just the groups you want to see rallying, material stocks, technology and industrials. that all happened around 11:30 eastern time as the ecb reportedly agreed to swap the greek bonds for new bonds. elsewhere, the euro, materials, transports, and apple all doing well today. more on the greek debt talks, at tradertalk.krshs maria, back to you. >> bob, thank you so much. breaking news in the auto industry. phil lebeau on the phone with the details. >> maria, we learned chrysler has withdrawn its application to the department of energy for a loan of approximately $3.5 billion. that is a loan that who go towards the development and ultimately the manufacturing of a next-generation vehicle, a more fuel-efficient vehicle. many of these loans are used for hybrid technology or electric vehicles. chrysler had been in negotiations with the department of energy, and for some time sergio marchon indicated it was not a slam dunk that they would take out the $3.5 billion loan. today chrysler decided, you know what, given the political environment, given the restrictions that the department of energy would put on those loans, we're going to go ahead and take a pass on taking out that $3.5 billion loan. chrysler, once again, withdrawing its application with the department of energy for a loan totaling approximately $3.5 billion. maria? >> all right. thank you so much, phil le bebe on the breaking news with chrysler. it definitely was among the ropes that the market was stronger today, jobless claims down by 13,000 last week. now to a seasonally adjusted 348,000, the lowest level in nearly four years. any level below 350,000 is considered critical for sustained strength in the jobs market. lower food and energy expenses last month. the core ppi jumped .4%. carl icon

>> rose: welcome to our program. we begin this evening with the commissioner of the new york police department, ray kelly. >> so if you talk about legacy, this city has come so far from what we were faced with on january 1st of 2002. it is much safer. the feeling of safety is there, our department, police department is much more diverse. we have add add tremendous amount of technology andxd capability. i would submit to you that, and i have been around the department a long type, that our relationship with the many, many communities in new york, the most diverse in any world are better now than they have ever been. >> rose: we conclude this evening with the appreciation of whitney houston, who died in los angeles at age 48, joining me, can dab yen snim of billboard and jon pareles of "the new york times". >> when you heard her sing you went over there to turn up the volume, when her song came on the radio you stay in the car after you park until she finished. i mean, all you have to do is look at the star-spangled banner, super bowl 25, i have never seen that sung more nonchalantly,

show. first though, let's get to the news. live at 5:30 a.m. at 30 rock in new york city. president obama's budget proposal will likely never see a vote on capitol hill but it sets the stage for a fight that divided washington for years, including last year. the $3.8 trillion spending plan outlines the president's, including investments on education and infrastructure. we're calling on wealthier americans to share more of the burden. >> right now, we're scheduled to spend nearly $1 trillion more on what was intended to be a temporary tax cut for the wealthiest 2% of americans. do we want to keep the tax cuts for wealthiest americans or keep investing in everything else? education, clean energy, a strong military, care for our veterans. we can't do both. we can't afford it. some people go around and say, well, president is engaging in class warfare. that's not class warfare. that's common sense. [ applause ] that's common sense. >> the president's plan includes $4 trillion in deficit cuts over the next ten years. most coming by way of new tax revenue and savings from the wars in iraq
Feb 14, 2012 2:30am PST
the plan. you'll be surprised to know the new york times disagrees wi as. right writing president obama's 2013 budget was greeted with republican catcalls that it's simply a campaign document. but election year budgets are supposed to explain priorities to voters. this one offers a clear and welcome contrast to the slashing austerity. congress were not dysfunctional if it cared more about economic stabilization and scoring political points it would sign on to a budget like this. that's the view from the new york times. from the other side, the wall street journal called obama's federal budget a "brilliant bit of miss direction" titled the amazing obama budget. it reads in part, all voters need to do is spend disbelief for another nine months and ignore the first four years. the political reality of budgeting is that voters should only believe what they can see, which is what politicians are proposing now. promises of cuts are a mirage. mr. obama needs to point to the mirage because his fist record is the worst in modern american history. two sides of the debate. the new york times
